Top Ten Pokemon Shippings

The Top Ten

1 Ash and Serena

Nowadays we see people sharing their opinions here and especially screaming out, that Ash and Serena are meant to be for one another. And I personally think this is true. Like, hello! It's rather special don't you think, that really, after such a long time from meeting in childhood, Serena still remembered Ash and had feelings for him? Don't comment badly on this - it's true because after that incident Serena never saw Ash again, or knew his name, until she was a teenager and saw him in the middle of a Pokemon battle. I kinda liked the idea of downright, sharp-tongued Iris to be with solid, hard-working Ash, because it's rather funny, but honestly I think Ash and Serena are better together. And really, Ash only argued with her once, and Serena is always kind and helpful to him. Iris is really funny with Ash, in my opinion, but she's too hard with Ash and argues with him. Dawn? Oh, she's completely marvellous and is like Ash's female clone but really she's a bit hardheaded and rather ...more

Best ship in my opinion and why the hell do other shipper come and give arrogant comment, can't you all just accept defeat, sorry to say but no amourshipper are arrogant, you people just go around and make up stuff saying how arrogant is amourshipper. I have never scene any amour going to other shipping videos, pics and comment how bad is misty, may, dawn and iris are but you people just can't be happy and let other people be happy, going to all amourshipping videos and comment how sick or bad this couple are or how worst is Serena, Sorry to say but you people really need to stop those stupid acts it's annoys lot of people, to anti amourshipper it's true you have your opinion but in your opinion it has no meaning cause your hate reason is so dumb like she hates her which Pokemon fan will believe that dumb everyone watched xy and saw how much she loved her Pokemon and so what she always cares about ash, there is nothing wrong in it even though it's a kid show it known as anime and most ...more

I LOVE this pairing. For the first time we have a girl who has a canon crush on Ash (Misty was implied to like Ash mostly for the 4Kids dub, in the Japanese dub it was slightly implied). But a lot of people bash Serena's crush on Ash saying she's obsessed with him (Apparently forgetting Misty was far more possessive of Ash than Serena ever has been). Recent episodes have shown that Serena's love for Ash is the real deal, she knows him well enough to know when he's not being himself and pull him out of a funk accordingly. Serena appears to be closer than Ash than the rest of the Pokegirls, truth be told he seems to treat her better than he did the others. Ash has shown subtle hints of maybe liking her back such as: consistently putting what she wants above what he wants. Ash has established himself as someone who doesn't like to do feminine like things (clothes shopping, or dancing) and Ash consistently agreed with Serena's request of going to clothing/Jewelry stores, he hates dancing ...more

Ash and Serena look so cute together and she is actually the first poke girl that had a real crush on ash. AMOURSHIPPING IS NUMBER ONE

2 Ash and Misty

The only person who Ash actually likes or has liked is Misty. Ash just never acted attracted towards anyone else. Sure, it may be hidden, but there are many moments low-key showing they like each other. All the other Ash related ones are one sided, or even no sided. They also have the most comparable personalities, both are rash, somewhat mean to each other, but both secretly care about one another a lot, and both actually train Pokemon. The other girls are either too girly, think they are better than anyone, or are just his friend.

It makes me sad to see a lot of people like these kind of shippings where one is rarely supportive of their 'friend,' and all both do is argue and make things worse for each other. Yes, arguing is caring or whatever blablabla... and fight like a married couple whatever. But even married couples have good moments & show can get through their arguments by being closer than before. Not ash & misty. They argue, and both need Brock (and Tracy) to help stop them arguing. I'm sorry, but how would that make any kind of 'good' relationship? The answer is, it honestly wouldn't. I can see why the divorce rate nowadays is so high, if people really think that relationships like ash & misty could honestly work out at all.

I know that Serena literally has a crush on Ash, but it's also so obvious that Misty and Ash should be together. I mean, seriously. She follows Ash on his quest to become a Pokemon master for no reason! Please don't say that Serena will be with Ash. I disagree completely.

Everyone has seen the last episode of pokemon XYZ. Serena has kissed ash. But that not means she is the one for ash. In many anime many supporter character has kissed the main male character but that not means they are canon. I don't care about it. What I know is I am a pokeshipper and poke shipping will be canon

3 May and Drew

I've seen almost every episode of Pokemon and I have to say that these two have the most chemistry, while they have their fights occasionally they still look out for each other and in my opinion come the closest to being canon from a lot of the popular ships

Yes! I support Ash and Misty, but this is good, too, and to be honest, this one is more likely.

How can you not love this ship! Everything about it is great! I hope they'll make a series for May in Johto. It's obvious that they both like each other and blush in front of each other!

They work so well and it's just fun to watch

4 Ash and Dawn

I love Ash and Dawn together! They are so cute together! They even had their own song! They should be together forever and ever! I don't know why people keep saying Ash and Dawn are more like siblings than lovers?! I personally think that Ash and Dawn is one true pairing and to be together! I don't know why others like and prefer Ash and Serena together. Ash and Serena's shipping is just too boring for me. I would always ship Ash and Dawn together even if nobody liked it! Ash and Dawn should be together in end instead of Ash and Serena be together. Ash and Dawn is my otp! Ash and Dawn together for the win!

"Dawn is not supposed to be with Paul or Kenny, they're not her type. Misty is too possessive and Serena is not ash's type. Ash was much closer with Dawn. They high five, Dawn cheered for ash in a cheerleader costume with her Pokémon. They have each other's back more. They are definitely much closer. Ash put all of his friend's needs before his, so that doesn't make Serena special at all. Serena is thinking of ash all the time and is trying to get ash to love her but it's definitely one sided while ash thinks of Serena as a friend and that's it, that's their relationship, strictly just friends no matter how much Serena wants to be more than friends. Dawn and ash have that relationship where there's more contact, support both ways and that bond that can never be broken. Dawn returned in the show later and ash was very happy to see her. Dawn was very emotional when ash left while Serena didn't. Clearly, Dawn's feelings for ash are much stronger than Serena's feelings for ash. When ...more

This is truly the best ship, Ash and Dawn are basically best friends and work amazingly together. This ship is far better then Ash and Serena which somehow is #1 on this list and most hated on the most hated Pokemon ships list. Is still like Ash and Misty as well as Ash and May it's just that I prefer this ship.

Eh it's definitely better then the other ones on this list

Because no matter how much one far away they'll there best to find each other or dawn anyway as it seems and didn't dawn end up with someone else watch the last episode of the gen 4 one she has a choice about being on his adventure or staying with some idiot.

5 Dawn and Kenny

But in the anime dawn rejects kenny

I love this shipping! But really I don't get why people hate it so much though, look at them they grew up together and at one point dawn said that Kenny looked handsome when he beats ash! It's so romantic

Kenny got friendzoned

Dawn did seem interested in Kenny in the anime, and se even said he was cute when he beat Ash!

6 Oshawott and Meloetta

Lol true

DELETE THIS. - InklingSethO

Lols so true

7 Ash and May

I do not know why I like this couple so much but it is my favorite. I like Ash and Serena too but I do not know the way Ash takes care of May is so sweet and he saved her a lot of times. Best couple in my opinion.

They look more like teacher and student or siblings...and how can u guys forget contest shipping that shipping is the most cannon in the series...and ash and misty look like true lovers

What got me was how Ash is always supporting May. He was there to comfort her when she missed the boat to get to the contest, and he saved her life from falling down a cliff while being attacked by Mageton. Not to mention the Manaphy movie.

They just really seem sweet together

I think that people who think contestshipping is doublesided, and that it is canon, are RETARDED! They clearly don't know what a doublesided relationship is and what canon means! First of all, about the "romantic attraction" between the two, drew DOES have a crush on may, it's similar to that of serena's crush on ash. But may does NOT have a crush on drew, she sees him as a good friend at best.

Second of all, about May blushing when her mother said that her and drew looked "cute" on the beach, blushing doesn't always mean love! it can also mean embarrassment (which is usually the case, it also is the case here), gladness (like when you get complimented by someone), laughter (people usually blush when they laugh), anger (same thing here) and guilt! in may's case, it was embarrassment cause of course you're gonna get embarrassed and blush when your mother says that you and your friend or whatever look cute together (and I don't mean together in a ...more

8 Jessie and James

I don't get why they're not more popular, they're the ones with the most chemistry and they really care about each other. Rocketshipping is so painfully underrated. But I think I know why and that's because the new audience of each generations are mainly children and they are less likely to understand grown up characters. I've shipped these two since the beginning and my friends didn't get it back then, when they got older they understood what I meant. - Trivona

Deserves to be higher. The only pairing among the main characters I can take seriously, Ash and most of his friends are too young and the younger you are the more likely are breakups.

This is so underrated. Why do people like those unrealistic Ash pairings? He's a kid, his female friends are kids. I find it disturbing how people ship kids so seriously, when the actual adult shippings are underrated.

This is overrated. No one else ships them with other characters. >.> and James deserves better than jessibell 2.0. Like, he should've stayed with jessibell if he was going to marry Jessie. And before u say, manga=/=anime. It makes more sense that way, people. And Jessie doesn't deserve James as a friend, let alone a lover. She's such an awful friend to him, when he tries to make her happy (out of fear, love shouldn't b based on that), blames him when things go wrong, steals from him & gets rid of HIS Pokemon she doesn't like (like jessibell wanted, so y should James b forced to marry jessibell 2.0 again? ) and not even care that she upset him. So no, there is no love that should come out of this toxic, controlling, abusive relationship.

9 Wobbuffet and Kirlia

I don't even know what to say...

This one was sorta cute. They fell in love in one of the episodes. - Oliveleaf

W t f? How did this even enter the top ten? This ship makes no sense...

10 Darkrai and Cresselia

How is this even applicable

Its like Groudon and Kyogre

The Contenders

11 Dawn and Paul

AWFUL SHIPPING! Why is this in the top ten? Not only did Paul & Ash have more positive conversations (which is saying something), but they barley communicated at all

This ship is so overrated. These characters have barely made contact.

Why do people ship this! Dawn clearly doesn't like Paul at all so this ship doesn't make sense.

2 CUTE!

12 Calem and Serena

They look cute together, and they're NOT an anime ship like almost every other ship on this list. And Calem is much better than Ash.

How could you not love this ship is better than amour

People say he/she friend-zoned you I didn't see that at least with Serena she seemed real interested in Calem

Calum is you

13 Gary and Ash

Literally Ash is so gay, he doesn't even consider his female friends as potentially more. Also Gary gets Ash going more than anyone else...and do I need to mention the similar reaction when hearing Gary's name as Brock has to Prof Ivy coincidence I think not. Also the original Japanese hints at Gary and Ash liking each other a lot more

My favorite! Ash looks cuter with a boy than with a girl. He will never truly LOVE any girl. Sure almost every girl has a crush on him, but he really should meet up with Gary again.

This is one of my favorite ships of all time!

yes

14 Cilan and Iris

Cilan is too awesome to have a girlfriend. Need I say more? Also, 5 year age gap. - RiverClanRocks

Cute ship in my opinion. Too bad it doesn't get much support

This is good. Its nice and sweet they protect each other from their own fears.

Naww, Iris is too awesome to have a boyfriend.

15 Snivy and Pignite

Yeah. It is cute, but I lean more more towards snivy x oshawott, but not Ash's ones! I prefer snivy x lignite on that one! I just think the species complement each other!

16 Bonnie and Max

Well. I saw a picture that Bonnie kissed Max and good they're the youngest couple I seen yet. Yep! I like this they are so cute together!

They look cute together. Best youngest couple in the series

I like this one! It's so cute! They ate so perfect!

PUT IT IN the TOP 10 - TherealSlim_Shady

17 Elekid and Marill
18 Pikachu and Buneary

Worst Ship

First of all Buneary has a crush on Pikachu and pikachu doesn't have a crush on Buneary

Stupid ship, you name it

I guess its one sided

NO NOT WORST SHIP AWESOME SHIP

Senpai dirty notice meh

19 Brendan and May

If you played Pokemon oras you should know this is almost canon.

One of the best shippings in the games and better than anything in the anime

This at least deserves to be in the first page

I voted this because of the manga story.

20 Iris and Ash

I'd say it's pretty underrated, but Iris as a whole is pretty underrated. They look cute together and shown they can have fun together by swigging on trees and hanging out in that one city. Cute shipping wish it wasn't as disliked.

Idc what people say, I think they go well together. They even had an entire episode together doing fun activities without Cilan. Ash even turned down an offer to _battle_ the subway masters because he promised to spend the day with Iris.

Its actually a pretty good shipping

I LOVE THIS SHIP. Iris was the first charector that was volored, and never really gave her a Backstory until season 2, and the fact that ash and Iris had the closest thing to a date, you just can't get past that.
